Sadler’s team faces a P2 penalty of a $5,000 fine since this is a first occurrence. There would be no points penalty.
The JR Motorsports team of Harvick and Richard Childress Racing team of Gaughan face a P2 penalty for being too low in the rear. John Hunter Nemechek‘s Camping World Truck Series team was docked 10 points after New Hampshire in September for a similar infraction.
Gaughan is last among the eight remaining Chase contenders after Saturday’s race. He is 23 points from the final cutoff spot. A penalty would increase that deficit.
NASCAR is expected to announce penalties later this week.
